An almost forgotten delicious sandwich spread.

Oh wow, this one brought back some wonderful childhood memories.  When I was a little kid, I always enjoyed apple butter on toast when I went to my Aunt Margaret's.  This apple butter tastes like what I remember from then. Package this apple butter in small jars and it would make a great gift for friends and family.

This is a really easy recipe to prepare.  I used Granny Smith apples. There was a wonderful sweet/tart flavor.   The Test Kitchen
